Foreclosures and short sales can potentially bring the value of the other homes in the neighborhood down, so it is important information for you to know! Lucy's suggestions are great to determine whether it is going into foreclosure, as well as when it might be placed on the market or auctioned. If you have friends or relatives who wish to purchase a home in your neighborhood, you could keep them informed about the property and encourage them to work with a real estate professional. That way, not only can you help keep the neighborhood property values up, but you can also pick your next neighbor. Win-win situation!

#1 Ask the person who lives there.
#2 Watch for notices posted on the door or in the windows.
#3 Watch for people moving out in the middle of the night around 1st weekend of the month.
#4 If you see a sale sign in the yard, call the agent and ask.

These are probably the easiest ways.

I understand why you would want to know why the property next door might be facing foreclosure. Once a bank serves the home owner with a foreclosure notice, it typically is posted at the Tarrant County Court House on the first Tuesday of the next month. There are several Real Estate Brokers that watch for homes to be posted so they can list them. I am not one of those Broker/Agents. I typically represent Buyers. Another venue, if you receive the Fort Worth Telegram, Foreclosures are posted in the newspaper. If you want me to keep an eye on it for you - email I'll let you know what the home is selling for. I would want to know myself if the home next door was facing foreclosure! Take care!

Does it truly matter if it does? Lender have to maintain the property per city code. Like any other home on the market vacant whether owned by property who moved out.
